The future is looking bright for both Villa Valencia parks. Neighborhood home owners association president Raul Telles met with city officials Friday morning to discuss placement of new lights at both community parks. The large park will undergo the installation of three light poles, and the small park will get two.
“30 days estimated time,” said Mr. Telles via text message. “EP Electric will be installing poles in the neighboring community across the street at one of their new parks that is being constructed. Mr. Ruiz [Sunland Park City Superintendent] caught wind of this, so he pushed one of my [park lighting] requests to the top for Villa Valencia.”
When asked at which park lighting installation will begin: “Both parks, within 30 days,” Mr. Telles replied. “If [there are] any delays, we’ll keep everyone posted.”
